I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. May I have an update on your dogs, please? If neither are acting abnormal, neither ingested enough chew to intoxicate themself. Nicotine acts within minutes to cause vomiting, diarrhea, tremors, ptyalism (drooling), miosis (smaller than usual pupils), agitation, seizures, and even death. A 40 lb dog would become very sick after eating one cigarette.
